about us

GaySpiritFriends and Spirit Journeys have been working together on a European retreat for GBTQ-men since 2011.

Spirit Journeys, an American organization, led by Hunter Flournoy, has been facilitating retreats, weekends and travel for GBTQ-men for over 25 years. Their facilitators have been inspiring men from all over the world with their beautiful workshops and travels. 

GaySpiritFriends is a Dutch organization founded in 2011 for the sole purpose of bringing GBTQ-men together for meaningful connections.

''After joining a Spirit Journeys retreat in New Mexico in 2011, I felt inspired to ask Hunter Flournoy (the new director and lead facilitator of Spirit Journeys) to join me in co-creating a similar event in Belgium. It has been an amazing journey so far and we are still continuing the journey.
Our professional cooperation and also our friendship has grown over the last couple of years and we are always excited to create our Annual International Gay Retreat in Belgium. The event always takes place in the first or second week of October each year.'' - Danny Arnoldussen - 


We focus on an international group of gay, bisexual and queer men for our retreats.
All ages, nationalities, singles and couples are welcome.

Our mission is to bring gay, bisexual and queer men from all over the world together to be inspired, feel heartfelt connections with themselves and other men, to learn and grow, have an adventure and finally return home energized, inspired, more mindful and more compassionate with themselves and the world.
We offer multidisciplinary, cross-cultural program at the retreat in a safe, warm and fun environment. 

Every journey starts with opening up to new possibilities and taking a first step!
We invite you to join us for a beautiful, adventurous and inspiring week.

to look upon it as an adventure.''
